I have created new Icons on my desktop for certain websites and have set
pictures for them as an icon. Four of the icons, are not working properly
because their pictures are not showing and instead it is just showing a page
with the Internet symbol infront of it. I have tryed to resolve the problem
by going into the properties and re-setting the icons picture and I have
tryed deleting and recreating the icon with the picture. Both of these did
not help and my problem remians un-resolved. If anyone has any information on
how to resolve this problem, please notify me as soon as possible. Thanks! -

This solution has been posted before and seems to work. Try method two
first, and if that's not enough, use method one.

This one is essentially the same:
